I was so impressed with the food. The service was tip top, we were seated immediately even though they were slightly full. I had ordered the bass fish, the exterior was cooked to perfection. When you bit into the fish it melted in your mouth. The combination of potato mashed and the drizzle created mouthwatering sensations. Wonderful. Keep it up.

We went for the Ice Cream & Wine pairing and sat out in the gardens, what a magnificent venue and delightful experience. The restaurant was packed and we will definitely be back during a quieter time of the year.

WOW! Outstanding food and wine pairing, excellent value. Beautiful setting just wished we had been on the terrace. Staff were very attentive, didn't rush us through the courses. We went with friends so all chose different dishes, all were superb. The flavours of my choices were first class. Definately going back....soon.

Wine by the glass is excellent value and allows you to pair wine and food as you wish. And of course the view is to die for! The... More

Interesting way of wine tasting. Their combination menu which links the platter with an appropriate wine is a very interesting diversion. The meal itself was well presented and tasted absolutely tasty
